Despite the challenges and hardships brought about by the pandemic, the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) in Papua New Guinea continue to flourish as new members from various ethnic backgrounds join the fold.
As a result of their diligence in spreading the words of truth, the group worship services (GWS) of Mount Hagen and Lae City in Papua New Guinea, Ecclesiastical District of Australia West, conducted baptisms in the place of worship of Lae City GWS on January 17 and 18, 2021.
Brother Regino Manangan, Jr., resident minister of Port Moresby Local Congregation, led the holy gatherings. In the homily, he taught the biblical teaching about the importance of valuing one’s Church membership in attaining salvation on Christ’s Second Advent.
Brother Manangan, in an interview, said, “The brethren in this part of the world are eager in sharing their faith that is why the Church here in Papua New Guinea continues to increase in membership. Through the guidance of our district supervising minister, Brother Romeo Beltran, there will be a series of baptisms that will be conducted in our area. We promise to God and to Brother Eduardo V. Manalo that we will never cease in proclaiming the Good News of salvation.”
With more people being added into the Church, newly baptized members promised to be true and devoted to their divine calling until the end. – With reports from INC News Section
